Even after talking to the famed tipster Surfer Girl, we still don't know what to make of her. We do know that she says a lot of things that we like to hear, and on Christmas she said that the Mother/Earthbound series will come to the US, possibly sometime next year.
Listed as #2 in her December twenty-fifth things, SG says that the title will hit either the Nintendo Wii or DS, which makes total sense as Mother is a Nintendo series.
Among other rumors/tips, we see that Team Ico is supposedly working on a couple more titles, and one is likened to Echochrome. Also, she says that Kane & Lynch 2 is still happening.
We've heard rumors that Earthbound is US bound for so long now that it's hard to believe anymore, so for now we'll stay positive and look to the lyrics of Earthbound's "Pollyana - I Believe in You" as a source of hope.
Hit the jump for the rest of Surfer Girl's predictions.
